FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions


How much do the bins you use hold?

We use a 95gal. bin to measure and price. It holds approximately 300-330lb paper. This equates to 10 standard banker file boxes or approximately 5-6 legal double size drawer style banker boxes.

Why do you use security bins to measure and price?

Many clients that store documents don’t always fill every file box. Why pay a per box charge if they are only partially filled.

What is a Certificate of Destruction?

A Certificate of Destruction is the formal document that shows that paperwork was shredded and has been destroyed to meet all Federal and State privacy law requirements.

What is NAID AAA and ISO 9001:2008 Certification?

NAID AAA certification is the information destruction industry’s certification for the highest level of security and safety procedures. While companies can just pay for membership to this organization, when they have been certified they have been inspected, audited and are held to a higher standard of security.

ISO 9001:2008 is an international certification where companies are audited, inspected and must prove that they are continually striving to improve their performance and procedures. PROSHRED® is proud to be the only onsite information destruction company in the USA with this added certification.

Why should my company outsource our shredding?

When you shred in-house, you are not using your time to grow your business, you are buying and maintaining equipment and, most importantly, there is no proof you are complying with the latest legislation. When you use Proshred® you are letting us do what we do best and allowing you and your company to do what you do best.

Do I need to remove staples and paperclips before you shred my documents?

PROSHRED® Southern New Jersey uses state-of-the-art industrial shredding trucks to destroy your documents. This means that unlike your in-house office or home shredder, there is no need to remove those pesky paperclips or staples.

Why shred on-site?

Shredding on-site provides the most secure chain-of-custody. You can follow your documents to the truck and watch them being shredded. When paper is shredded off-site you have no control over who is seeing and handling your sensitive documents.

What People Are Saying About PROSHRED®

Had we not called Proshred to come to our home to shred nearly twenty years worth of documents, we would have been shredding those documents for, well, another twenty years in our little office shredder. Two Proshred technicians come to our home, loaded over ten boxes of documents into their bin, wheeled the bin to their shredding truck and within three minutes the documents were securely shredded before our eyes. The technicians were accommodating and the whole procedure took all of five minutes... Proshred can come to your home and the documents are securely shredded in minutes--for a reasonable price. I strongly recommend Proshred. Dave.
